I need to build a new active directory structure with about 30 users and do not want to have to build out 30 user objects over and over again.  I am sure there is a way to build a default user object that can be used for new users.  I just do not how.

    sure,, just create one user that you want to use as the "template" and then rightclick that user and choose copy.  You will then see a screen that looks like the new user wizard.  this is just where you put in the name and username info for the "new" user.  This new user will have the same security rights as the 'template" user.
